ATTIVA – Radiofrequency endodermal skin lifting is the latest skin lifting method.
The old technology of radiofrequency lifting consisted of heating the surface of the skin long enough for the subcutaneous tissue to heat up to 43 ° Celsius. The limitation of this procedure was the excessive heating of the skin surface and the possibility of burns.
With the new technology – Attiva Subdermal induced heat technology, all signs of skin aging are effectively and safely removed, without the recovery period and without the risk of scarring.
What is the biological effect of radiofrequency on the skin?
Attiva radio waves are electromagnetic waves that, by passing under the middle layer of the skin, produce and generate a large amount of heat, without damaging its surface. The most important biological effect within tissue is the denaturation of proteins that participate in the formation of collagen fibres. Collagen gives the skin firmness, elasticity, and is responsible for a smooth wrinkle-free surface. Over the years, collagen production declines leading to the formation of wrinkles and sagging.
Attiva radiofrequency causes an instantaneous contraction of loose collagen fibres inside the skin, by induced heat of about 50 degrees, with visible effects of skin tightening and regeneration. The accumulated heat biochemically stimulates the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin, while the old collagen is remodelled and renewed. Cellular metabolism of the entire tissue is stimulated, with the improvement of microcirculation and oxygenation. The effects of the treatment are visible freshness, elasticity and rejuvenation of the skin.
Which skin regions can be treated with Attiva radiofrequency?
Attiva endodermal radio-frequency skin lifting can be used to tighten all parts of the skin where signs of aging and sagging started to appear. We use it for:
– tightening and lifting of skin of all regions of the face, especially lower part of the face – marionette or “puppet” lines.
– rejuvenation and lifting of the upper and lower eyelids, under eye bags
– tightening and rejuvenation of the skin of the neck and below the chin
– correction of fine wrinkles of all regions
– tightening of the sagging skin of the abdomen, thighs, upper arms and other regions.
How is Attiva radiofrequency applied to scars?
Attiva radiofrequency with induced heat of about 60 degrees remodels the fibrillar fibres in the scar, scar fibres, stimulates microcirculation, resulting in improved appearance and scar reduction. It can be used for the treatment of scars in all skin parts and of different ages.
Can Attiva radiofrequency lifting be used for lipolysis?
By applying thermal energy of about 70 degrees, we can achieve the destruction of fat cells localized in the abdomen, hips, chin and other body parts. Thermal energy causes lysis – breaking down of the fat cells, with the release of triglycerides into the intercellular space, while the improvement of circulation enables their elimination through lymphatic pathways.
What does Attiva radiofrequency lifting look like?
The procedure is painless, because the anaesthetic is given via injection to the site, with a flexible micro cannula. A thin electrode is then applied to the anaesthetized skin, emitting radiofrequency and moving slowly in the skin for a certain period of time and depending on the region.
The entire treatment is controlled by a camera that measures the temperature of the skin surface for the complete safety of the procedure. After the treatment, the skin appearance is unchanged. Occasionally, transient bruising or mild swelling may develop after treatment. The lifting effect becomes more visible after 4 to 6 weeks, and more pronounced over time due to the new collagen production. Satisfactory results are achieved with one or more treatments that can be repeated after 3 to 6 months.
When is the use of Attiva radiofrequency contraindicated?
Contraindications for the use of Attiva treatment are skin infections, wounds, erosions and herpes, acne and pustules, patients with pacemakers, neoplasms and metal implants.
